A shortage of on-campus housing at the University of Michigan appears to have been averted.
University Housing spokesperson Peter Logan says they have started converting small lounge areas into additional rooms and are encouraging upper classmen to voluntarily move into off-campus apartments.
"We're cautiously optimistic that we have been able to identify and make spaces available for the number of incoming freshmen that we need to have," Logan says.
A record-breaking class of incoming students exceeded the school's housing projection.
The shortage initially left around 450 incoming freshmen without housing assignments.
